Vintage Marcia

“It's always good to remember where you come from and celebrate it. To remember where you come from is part of where you're going.” - Anthony Burgess
Celebrating 23 years of being The Happy Family Historian by sharing some images from the vault. I love this image because it tells a story. You wonder where the couple is a little hidden meadow perhaps? There's also a second story...I entered this image into international competition the year I created it, a time when Professional Photographers of America was still very traditional in it's judging criteria. I was honored to receive a Merit Award for this image and even more so when I was later told by one of the judges that he and another judge fought tooth and nail to award this editorial image when it didn't yet fit the views of the time of what a wedding image 'should be'.
